Heavy Rain into Tonight near the California and Oregon Border Nov 20, 2017

Rounds of heavy rain have been pushing ashore along the California and Oregon coast today as a rich feed of moisture moves in from the Pacific Ocean. Flash Flood Watches continue for areas near the coast along the Oregon – California border. Up to 5″ of rain could fall by later this evening.

The areas of biggest concern are in burn scar regions and in the foothills of the west mountain slopes. The Chetco Bar fire occurred in this region last month, burning 191,125 acres. The heavy rainfall may lead to urban and small stream flooding. In addition, rock, landslides, mudslides and significant debris flow will be possible, especially near steep terrain.

Pockets of heavy rain are possible into this evening as a warm front approaches the coast. As the front lifts to the north overnight, along with a low pressure center, the heaviest rain will shift away from the region. This will diminish the flooding threat.
